Oak Hammock Marsh in April

Spring is here – the snow is gone and the birds are back in town. Well – Oak Hammock Marsh isn’t actually “in” town, but it is north of town and many of the birds flew right over. Many of them may have even stopped for a rest on the rivers or little lakes in town.

Although the sun wasn’t shining today, I had nothing else on my calendar for the day and it was a warm day – so off I went.

As I got out of my car in the parking lot, a Kildeer was there to greet me – so he (or she) was my first photo of the day.

I started my walk through the marsh and found a nice variety of birds.

The Red-winged Blackbirds were everywhere and managed to get in quite a few photos. The Yellow-headed Blackbirds were a pleasant surprise for me, since I hadn’t seen any of them in many years.

I left the building area and marsh walks for a walk in the north area of the conservation area. On the drive I saw this hawk flying.

I will update here when I find out what this was.

Of course I found a couple more birds and one little (and very cooperative) critter to take photos of while walking.
